As an ambassador and supporter of Ronald McDonald House®Charities Canada, Olympic Silver Medalist Patrick Chan regularly visits RMHs across Canada as he travels the country, and RMHNA was ready to welcome him.

As our House Heroes shook Patrick’s hand, received autographs and posed for photos with one of Canada’s champions, the House was buzzing with excitement at having a hero in our midst. Patrick was a gracious visitor, spending quality time with each person he interacted with, and sharing that electric smile of his. It was clear that Patrick is an Olympian with an Olympic sized heart.

One of our community House Champions, Scott Weller was also at the House completing his highly successful Buck-A-Burpee fundraiser that morning, and Patrick even did a few burpees alongside Scott.


House CEO Martin Dugas presented Patrick and Scott with Team Kyler tees to finish off the visit RMHNA style.

Thank you for visiting, Patrick! Our House Heroes would love to welcome you back anytime your travels bring you to Edmonton!
